María José Crespo – Female flickers over built environments

30.09 & 01.10.2023

2-7pm at WET

On Saturday the 30th we will serve drinks from 5pm

‘Female flickers over built environments’ is an installation where different female characters meet, make plans, share secrets, and furnish each other with communication tools for different scenarios reflecting on the Mexican revolution at the border between México and the United States.

María José Crespo (Tijuana, 1991) completed her BA in Fine Art at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California in Tijuana (2017) and her MA in Fine Art at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam (2022). Her current research looks into how the porous space between territory, language, limits, and the body can be understood by extending their relations as gestures. By questioning how she inhabits certain boundaries as a woman, she is interested in studying remains and traces that administrative powers leave behind in unclear territories.

The project is supported by CBK Rotterdam.
